Park Platz
Berlinische Galerie, Berlin
May 31, 2021 – September 20, 2021

The Berlinische Galerie stands in the middle of a residential neighbourhood built mostly in the 1980s. Ever since the museum opened on Alte Jakobstrasse in 2004, art for the urban space has had a role to play. Back then, a sculptural pathway was designed to lead through the area to the entrance. Just how much attitudes to art in the public space have changed since then is illustrated by the “Park Platz” project.

The concept for “Park Platz” combines art with interactive events. A temporary pavilion by architects c/o now and new works by Berlin-based contemporary artists from many different countries will transform the museum car park into an urban forum. A public theatre is emerging with an exhibition area and space for collective action, performance, debate, video screening and workshops, but also for cooking together and relaxing on a summer’s day.

“Park Platz” sets up a dialogue with its surroundings and with urban society, opening up to diverse voices and asking what public spaces can contribute to our lives today and tomorrow. There will be site-specific interventions where architects, artists and others reflect their experience and perspectives. Throughout the summer months, these activities will engage with the museum’s neighbours to address connections between east and west, north and south, and themes such as encounter and desire, identity and nature.
